Ibrahimovic has not played since September 21st because of a nagging heel problem but his coach at Paris Saint-Germain, Laurent Blanc, said last week that the 33-year-old was on the road to recovery.
"His participation does of course depend on his injury healing," read a statement released by the Swedish football federation on Monday.
"Zlatan is positive and I am hopeful that he will train this week and play for PSG before the qualifiers but we will wait and see," said Sweden coach Erik Hamren.
Later on Tuesday, however, the coach revealed that Ibrahimovic would miss Wednesday night's Champions League match against APOEL.
They then face France in a friendly on November 18th at the Stade Velodrome in Marseille.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is Sweden's top goal scorer and was recently nominated for FIFA's prestigious Golden Ball or Ballon d'Or prize.
